Home Forums JavaScript preloading a webpage Re: preloading a webpage


One trick is placing an absolute positioned div right after the body opening tag, give it a with and height of 100%. Put something fancy in it, some loader gif image, and make it dissapear when the entire document was loaded using javascript.

It’s kinda simple and maybe old, so you should have a look at other solutions as well
